    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Oct 13, 2015

    G.I. JOE Cobra World Order Prelude does what it sets out to do and that is set the stage by introducing the characters and world of G.I. JOE to new readers or providing a good refresher for long-time readers of the series. Larry Hama keeps it entertaining with a nice little subplot to keep the JOEs on their toes but also to showcase the enormity of the situation they will be facing. S.L. Gallant's art does a decent job of transitioning between the facility tour and the exposition of what has previously occurred in the universe. If you are looking to jump-in, now is the time to do so.

    This issue is somewhat more entertaining than reading a Wikipedia entry, but in terms of building excitement for Cobra World Order, it's a dud. Read Full Review

    Essentially, what we have here is a 32-page version of the previously on G.I. Joe section that you would expect to find at the beginning of any issue.  As a perfect jumping-on point, this is anything but, and I only hope that the actual Cobra World Order Event features some actual content, otherwise this is going to be a long, painful slog.   I may check in on it, but more to satisfy my own nostalgic curiosity than because of anything done by this particular issue.
